Most underrated captain

Jason Smith is leading in votes (sportsnet.ca) for the most underrated captains in NHL

I'm not suprised, because he is. He doesn't get the bigtime play because he doesn't score goals or what not, but he brings alot to the team and is a good leader.

He's the first name that comes to mind when thinking of underrated captains around the league.

Most underrated is definitely Kimmo Timonen. And it's not even close.

I'm going to have to agree, because I didn't even know he was a captain

He hasn't even been captain for a full season. It's kind of hard to say how good a captain he is with only one year to go by (not that it's easy to tell how good a captain someone is anyway).

He's definately among the league's most underrated players though.

Chris Clark in Washington has turned into a wonderful hockey player.

They rotate Captains don't they? Or perhaps Clark was such a good leader they stopped rotating.

I think only Minny does that (rotating captains).

I think Buffalo too, with Drury Capt at home games and Briere Capt at road games, or vice versa (not sure).

I think part of the problem is people assume captians are to be top line FWs'


used to be that the captians were always the worriors on the team

Wouldnt say its not even close... there are other guys, Walz, etc... but he definitly is an underated guy. Surely more underrated than Smith.

To me the most underrated captain in the league is Olli Jokinen. He is one of the most underrated players period. I also agree with the Marleau suggestion. To me the most underrated captain would be the one who gets the least amount of publicity while contributing the most to his team. Jason Smith, although a warrior, is not the most underrated. He is appropriately rated based on his ability and performance. Leadership wise I think he is underrated - but value to team not so much.

He must be one helluva captain in the dressing room or else he wouldn't be on the team. He has greatly under-achieved this season, to put it mildly. imo.
